The 36th annual Festival of Trees returns to the Tacoma Armory

The Tacoma Armory was filled this weekend with elaborately decorated Christmas trees. It’s the first time the annual Festival of Trees took place in person since 2019.

The Tannenbaums and accompanying items – each with their own theme – are being auctioned off to raise funds for Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital. KNKX's Special Projects Reporter Mayowa Aina went see the holiday tradition.

Mayowa Aina covers cost-of-living and affordability issues in Western Washington. She focuses on how people do (or don't) make ends meet, impacts on residents' earning potential and proposed solutions for supporting people living at the margins of our community. Get in touch with her by emailing
